Fondue is a traditional European food that was introduced to the United States in the 1960s. Fondue was first invented when the villagers’ bread got stale during the winter months. The villagers found that if they heated the cheese, it could soften the stale bread.
These days, a lot of things other than bread are soaked in processed cheese, such as broccoli, apples, carrots, and tomatoes.
There is also the chocolate fondue, ideal for dipping desserts like fruits and candies.
To celebrate National Fun with Fondue Month, as well as my first fondue attempt, I visited The Melting Pot, located in the Country Club Plaza.
For my fondue experience, I tried the cheese and chocolate fondue. I chose the Quattro Formaggio for the melted cheese fondue. It was delicious and went well with all of the breads, fruit and veg provided, but I especially liked the way the cheese complemented the bread.
For the chocolate fondue, I opted for the S’mores fondue. It was an amazing experience, even ignoring the sides, which included a pound cake, brownies, strawberries, bananas and pineapples. The S’more fondue even included setting the fondue on fire and adding graham cracker pieces to add to the S’mores presentation.
To dip into the chocolate fondue, there were pound cake, brownies, strawberries, bananas, pineapple, Rice Krispies treats, and chocolate coated oreos.
I would definitely recommend The Melting Pot to anyone looking to try fondue whether it’s National Fun with Fondue Month or not. The service was attentive and the waiters were happy to answer any questions. For the price of the fondue it depends on the number of dishes you want; one, two, three or four courses. The full experience includes cheese, salad, starter and dessert. For one person, the full experience would cost between $ 74.95 and $ 89.95.
While this is a new holiday, I would definitely recommend celebrating National Fun with Fondue Month. You can do this by going out or getting creative and making it yourself. While every trip can be expensive, vacations are not to be missed.
